Programs include campus-wide partnerships, passport projects, and educational partnerships that reduce program costs. Additionally, the session will cover collaboration with community partners and donors and development of new and innovative study abroad programs with institutional partners that dually focus on outbound programs for culinary students while increasing international student enrollment at Kapi’olani.
